About this book

Brings together information on diverse freshwater taxa, with a mix of critical review, synthesis, and case studies. Using examples from bryozoans, rotifers, cladocerans, molluscs, teleosts and others, the authors cover current conceptual issues of evolutionary ecology in considerable depth.


Part 1 Ecosystem structure and trophic interactions: habitat partitioning by zooplankton and the structure of lake ecosystems, M.A. Leibold, A.J. Tessier; New Zealand mountain stream communities - stable yet disturbed?, M.J. Winterburn; complex trophic interactions in freshwater bethnic food chains, C. Bronmark, J. Dahl, L. Greenberg; prey dispersal and predator impacts on stream bethnic prey. Part 2 Aspects of life-history evolution: rotifer life history strategies and evolution in freshwater plankton communities, N. Walz; the evolution and genetics of maturation in Daphnia, D Ebert; optimal energy allocation tactics and indeterminant growth - life-history evolution of long-lived bivalves, J. Jokela. Part 3 Population biology and reproductive modes; ecology and genetics of interspecific hybridisation in Daphnia, K. Schwenk, P. Spaak; population biology, genetic structure, and mating system parameters in freshwater snails, T. Stadler, P. Jarne; evolution and ecological correlates of uniparental and biparental reproduction in freshwater snails, S.G. Johnson, C.M.Lively, S.J. Schrag; genetic similarity, parasitism, and metapopulation structure in a freshwater bryozoan, B Okamura.
